The Parting Glass

Suggested Key=D

      1         6m              1         5       
Of all the money that e'er I spent

        1                                     5     

I've spent it in good company

        1         6m            1             5                     

And all the harm that ever I've done

    1  4  1     5   6m                                

Alas it was to none but me

 1                                                    

And all I've done for want of wit

   
  4             5       6m       5                  
To memory now I can't recall

      1      6m        1            5       

So fill to me the parting glass

           1       4     1    5   6m                                 

Good night and joy be with you all

If I had money enough to spend
And leisure to sit awhile

There is a fair maid in the town

That sorely has my heart beguiled

Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips

I own she has my heart enthralled

So fill to me the parting glass

Good night and joy be with you all

Oh, all the comrades that e'er I had
They're sorry for my going away

And all the sweethearts that e'er I had

They'd wish me one more day to stay

But since it falls unto my lot

That I should rise and you should not

I'll gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be with you all
